User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [ja] (WinNT; U)
Description of problem:
When shutdowning, the machine which doesn't have sound device can't
save mixer setting in /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login and start X-Window(gnome)
2. select halt from gnome menu.
Actual Results: Saving mixer settings [FAILED]
modprobe: Can't locate module sount-slot-0
modprobe: modprobe: Can't loacte module sound-service-0-0
aumix: error opening mixer
Expected Results: Saving mixer settings [O.K.]
In /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt script, it decides to need to save the sound setting
by checking whether "soundcore.o" module is loaded. But as you know,
the module can be loaded even if the machine doesn't have any sound devices.
Gnome loads soundcore.o anytime, so we could see the error messages above.
Closing out bugs on older, no longer supported releases. Apologies for any lack
